    +1 McMillan Edge if you want the best. Others to consider are the Brown Pounder and Rimrock. Off the shelf, I do believe the lightest and readily available would be a Kimber Montana. The Remington 700 custom shop KS mountain models and AWRs are also real light, but, since the price hike these are not commonly stocked as they previously were.

    Default Bansners

    Mark Bansners High Tech stocks are good. About 20 oz. I sent my Mod. 70 .338 to him a few years ago with Ted Blackburn's one piece drop trigger bow/ floor plate. It allows 4 in the magazine. Anyway, they are very good stocks and their work is first class. I did have them shorten the forearm and cut it to my specified length of pull. The McMillian Edge stock is probably very good and cheaper then what I had done. Lone Wolf makes a very light stock, I heard the forearm is not very rigid though.

    +1 for Rimrock. They will lay it up to be as light or as heavy as you like. I have one on my Sako 375 H&H and the rifle is a joy to carry, and not too bad to shoot either.

    I have McMillan and Lonewolf stocks, Lonewolf hands down! One item that I really like is Lonewolf's customer service, FAR above McMillan!
